Although many homeowners find themselves at a loss at what to do with a small living space, the Orlando Sentinel reports there are many options at their disposal to make rooms appear larger than they actually are.

Color can play a vital role in the illusion, interior design experts told the news provider. Painting ceilings and walls the same color does not break up the room, and colors such as topaz or coral can be an effective alternative to white.

Hanging the correct window treatments can also make a room appear more spacious as well. Design expert Debbie Sheaf recommends choosing ones that leave the option for letting in ample amounts of light.

"The less you cover, the more light will flood in and the larger your small space will seem," Sheaf told the news source. "Choose a sheer fabric, or blinds or shades that expose the entire window when drawn up or aside."

Roman shades can be a great choice, as they offer a bevy of benefits that extend beyond making a room appear larger. Among the benefits of Roman shades are the ability block unwanted cold air in the winter.
